"From clinical trials, we are seeing what Metanx can do clinically, but it is also reassuring to know that in this time of soaring health care costs that Metanx may help reduce costs related to patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy," said Chet Busby, head of Pamlab's scientific affairs.

About the study

The matched cohort study of administrative claims data included 89 adult patients treated with Metanx and 178 patients in a control group. The study group was 65 percent male with a mean age of 60. The study period used medical and pharmacy claims between July 1, 2004 and April 30, 2007 from the HealthCore Integrated Research Database, which includes data on 34 million lives. All patients in the study were being actively treated for diabetes, and had been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. The Metanx treated group received a minimum of two pharmacy claims for Metanx tablets. All patients were followed for a minimum of 18 months. Multivariate statistical analysis was used to control for baseline differences in demographic and clinical characteristics in the cost analysis between the Metanx and control groups.
